According to the Turkish Samsung website, the former flagships, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will officially be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo soon. The update will start rolling out on May 18; however, the company had already confirmed the arrival of the update in the past but it wasn’t released as promised, so we can’t be sure of a final date. Recently, even a Support page from Verizon’s official website confirmed that Android Oreo would have been rolled out soon, but users haven’t got an update yet.
Further, even Samsung Turkey had confirmed the arrival of the update in the past: the official website mentioned April 13 as the rollout date, but today is 21st April and both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are still running Android Nougat. We hope that May 18 will be the right day. According to Samsung Turkey, besides Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, even the Samsung Galaxy A-series (2017 models) will get updated to Android Oreo soon.
The website lists the 1st June as the rollout date of the update on Samsung Galaxy A3, A5, and A7 (2017). Previously, the trio was tipped to get the update on May 25, but according to the new info it has been delayed by six days. Android Oreo for each of the above-mentioned handsets will be customized by Samsung Experience 9.0 UI which will include several new features and improvements.
